Before 1861 Southern Italy was a wealthy monarchy called "The Kingdom of the Two Sicilies." The capital was Naples, but a second palace was built at nearby at Caserta, and it is still today the largest palace in the world. It has also been the set for big movies like Mission Impossible, Angels & Demons, and is the Palace of Naboo from Star Wars: Phantom Menace.

This guided tour takes you through the gilded halls and royal apartments of the palace where Maria Carolina -- sister of Marie Antoinette -- ruled as the queen. Included in the tour is a visit to the so-called English gardens on the palace grounds.
